Back on topic. I've always disagreed with the 'opinions' part of the name database. I think meanings, entymology and well known name bearers are fine but any offensive opinions should be stricken from record.
Out of interest, I looked up a few of my favourite names.
Jory: 'For a girl.' ((The only comment... O_o))
Emery: 'Emery is still strong and viable for a boy, but you might want to consider Emory or Amory or Emerson as a more masculine option for your son.' ((Why would I need to alter the spelling of a boys name for a boy??))
Sigrid: 'Forever Scandinavian. Try cute diminutive Siri or more international Ingrid instead.' ((Nah cheers, I like Sigrid. That's why I clicked on it.))
Vito: 'Old World Italian name without much vigour.'
Edit:: This is harder than I thought. Some aren't even listed: Meirion, Ariella, Aneirin, Cesare, Dickon, Bridie, Aira etc etc

(Strong new James varietal, though sometimes shared by girls. A good choice to honor Grandpa Jim. It is swiftly moving up the charts, jumping from #319 to #210 in the past year alone.)
Really, off to the girls? Probably because James, is also suggested for girls.
More grown up than Jamie, but still awkward. Try Jameson...or James.
Suggesting James or Jameson for a girl and hurting the image of a valid female name.
Has a beautiful meaning, but still carries the image of an old man playing checkers.
I don't think so.
